my homepage is stuck with firefox "start". I have been using firefox/google for years, and after fixing some other problem, I am stuck with the start page. The toolbar with "fie, edit, view, bookmark, home" etc. is gone. I can't get it back.I am a researcher, and I've lost hundreds of bookmarks. I unistalled and re-installed firefox, but nothing really changed.1) What do I do to get the toolbar back?2) How do I retrieve all of my lost (and very valuable) bookmarks?Thank you.
